Pixelmetrix to release its Pelican™, the First Full Range Video Encoder Product Line, at CommunicAsia 201219 Jun 2012
Pixelmetrix, a leading innovator for professional video and television solutions, announced a new addition to its product portfolio – the Pelican™ family of video encoders. A sneak preview is planned for at Booth 1Q4-03, CommunicAsia, to be held in Singapore this week.
Built smaller than a 3.5 inch hard drive, the compact, rugged Pelican encoder is ideal for remote news gathering, enterprise video, hospitality, government, education and healthcare applications. Set up and configuration is a snap with the built in HTML5 web interface. All Pelican models support live IP streaming from the built-in Ethernet port.
At the show, Pixelmetrix will introduce three Pelican models: Pelican-Analog, Pelican-SD and Pelican-HD.
Pelican-Analog is for composite analog video and stereo analog audio inputs, Pelican-SD is for SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio, while Pelican-HD supports HD-SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio.
A wide range of video standards is supported, ranging from 320x180, all the way to 1080p. Both MPEG-2 and H.264 formats are supported as well.
“We are excited about this latest addition to the Pixelmetrix product line,” Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix President & CEO, enthused. “Our DVStor products have been deployed in more and more systems for alternative playout, time shift and disaster recovery. But to make a complete system, our customers always had to go somewhere else for the encoder. Now, with Pelican, our clients can enjoy one stop shopping for their needs,” he added.
Prices for Pelican start at US$2,950 for Analog, and under US$4,000 for HD. Product shipments begin in July.
Demo highlights at the booth also include the newly launched OTT Media Grinder (OMG) and the newly enhanced DVStor2 with Timeline and Multiflow.
Pixelmetrix presents its latest offerings at CommunicAsia with Alphatron, the authorized distributor in Singapore.
Pixelmetrix develops a host of Preventive Monitoring solutions, for Quality of Service and Quality of Experience, that offer unique attributes and versatility, allowing operators to achieve end-to-end visibility, and keep tabs on their network architecture while reducing operating expenses.
CommunicAsia starts on June 19 till 22, at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
